The CB500X is for the free-spirited, those who want to conquer the urban jungle. With its powerful two-cylinder engine and long-travel suspension, it was built for your adventures.

DETAILS MATTER

Take a closer look at the unique features that make CB500X the stuff of legend.
LONG TRAVEL SUSPENSION
Whether you want to take a brief trip through the rough city streets or explore the endless vistas of the open road, the CB500X is ready. Its 41mm telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear monoshock offer smooth, extended travel to absorb hits. Both are adjustable for spring pre-load, tailoring the steering geometry to accommodate a pillion and full luggage.
TOUGH ABILITY
The CB500X is designed to handle any kind of terrain. An increased ground clearance improves performance on rough roads, and three extra degrees of turning angle on the handlebars gives you outstanding handling. A 19-inch front wheel improves stability and roll-over ability, and block-pattern tyres ensure tenacious grip and feedback. The raised windscreen keeps you protected for a more enjoyable ride.
BRAKING CONTROL
Without control, power is useless. The new CB500X features a single front 310mm wavy disc and powerful two-piston brake caliper matched to a 240mm rear disc and single-piston caliper. Dual channel ABS is fitted as standard. Now you can easily manage braking force in wet or dry conditions.

THERE’S A WORLD OUT THERE

Make your mark on it.
The CB500X has a tough new look that exudes adventure. Inspired by the Africa Twin, it blends rugged lines with an aggressive stance, and the tall screen offers comfort.

COMPACT POWERHOUSE

And all-round performer.
The CB500X features the engine you need to explore on any type of road. Powerful, agile and efficient even on longer journeys: it gives you the freedom you’ve been dreaming of. And just like its larger CBR siblings, an Assist/Slipper Clutch eases upshifts and manages the rear wheel lock-up on hard down changes.

ADJUSTABLE CONTROL

For the long haul.
The CB500X features a new inverse-display LCD dash with Gear Position indicator. Tapered aluminium handlebars offer leverage and complete handling control, and full LED lighting, including indicators, is a premium finishing touch. The long travel 41mm telescopic forks are adjustable for spring pre-load, as is the Pro-Link rear monoshock.
